The Sports Afield 125th Anniversary Issue hits newsstands this week. This extra-large edition of America's premier hunting adventure magazine is chock-full of adventure stories spanning the hunting world from North America to Africa to Asia, and from past to present. Highlights include famed African professional hunter Harry Selby's article about the enigmatic African leopard; a look at the duck-centric heritage of Stuttgart, Arkansas; and the story of the youngest female hunter to take a Grand Slam of North American sheep.
In the pages of this issue, you'll get the latest information about how to protect yourself while hunting in bear country. You can travel to the great hunting grounds of Mongolia, read about a new line of ammo for dangerous game, and find out how hunters can become the leaders of a new conservation coalition. There are some fascinating historical pieces as well, including an exclusive look at two well-worn Model 70s used by Alaska's most famous brown-bear guides and a special reprint of a classic Russell Annabel adventure story from the 1970s.
Sports Afield, founded in 1887, is the oldest outdoor magazine in North America. The first issue was published in January 1888 in Denver, Colorado, by founding editor Claude King. A century and a quarter later, the magazine is still going strong with an emphasis on high adventure, fine firearms, and the pursuit of big game around the world.
"Sports Afield has been one of the greatest names in outdoor publishing for an incredible 125 years," said Diana Rupp, Sports Afield Editor in Chief. "Today it remains synonymous with the very best in hunting, conservation, and enjoyment of the outdoors."
